Austin Justice Coalition
Austin Justice Coalition is a Racial Justice Group that educates and builds community power for people of color who live in Austin, Texas that need support, community, and liberation during a time of systemic injustice in America.
Just Liberty is dedicated to comprehensive criminal justice reform in Texas, from the traffic stop to the local county jail, the courtroom, prisons, parole, and the reentry process. We want a criminal justice system which protects families instead of disrupting them, treats everyone fairly, rewards personal responsibility, and promotes liberty, justice, and respect for human dignity.
Texas Fair Defense Project
The Texas Fair Defense Project’s mission is to fight to end the criminalization of poverty in Texas. We envision a system of justice that upholds the dignity and civil rights of all people, regardless of income, race, or gender. Through impact litigation, legislative advocacy, and education, we are working to end counterproductive, costly, and unconstitutional practices like jail time for traffic tickets and our broken money-bail system.
Survivor Justice Project
Survivor Justice Project (SJP) is a local policy advocacy group seeking system and community level transformation to address sexual violence in Austin Texas. Survivor Justice Project (SJP) is a broad based coalition of community leaders, advocates and survivors of sexual assault seeking system level change in Austin and beyond. SJP began as a coordinated community response to the APD’s DNA lab closure in June 2016.
Texas Appleseed is a public interest justice center. We use data-driven research to identify solutions to the inequities that too many Texans face, and follow up with passionate advocacy for concrete, lasting change.
Workers Defense Project
Workers Defense Project is a statewide member-based organization building power for low-wage, immigrant workers across Texas. Through education, organizing and direct services, we empower workers to win fair, safe jobs and become effective advocates for themselves and their communities.
MEASURE seeks to build relationships, increase community trust and change behaviors, laws, policies, and ordinances as they pertain to interactions with people of color. The organization’s work is data-driven as it strives to use fact-based research and advocacy on behalf of marginalized segments of the populace.
Austin Democratic Socialists of America
Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States and we are in the midst of explosive growth nationally and locally. We are not a political party; we are an activist organization. Our vision is of a democratically run economy and society that gives power to the people rather than the privileged elites.
